    • Litigation
    • Creditors' Rights & Bankruptcy
    • Real Estate & Construction

As a commercial litigator, I help financial institutions manage complex matters regarding creditor’s issues, commercial collections, bankruptcy, foreclosures and receiverships. My focus on receiverships and my background in real estate law affords my clients a unique advantage. I understand the real estate industry and the intricacies and issues with real property. This allows me to view matters from multiple perspectives and understand how certain issues are impacted by different areas of the law.


My goal with every client interaction is to make a positive impact. I want to assure you understand the process, what can and cannot be gained, and point out when certain solutions are available to solve a problem that may not be immediately apparent.


I value developing true connections and partnerships with my clients, and am genuinely interested in getting to know you, your situation and ultimately how I can make your life easier.
